A couple's ultrasound is going viral because of something very unusual their baby did while they were watching in the doctor's office.

The Kansas City couple shared video of what appears to be their unborn child punching himself in the face.

Mom Vanessa Watson said she couldn't believe her eyes.

Little Edward James, EJ for short, appeared to hit himself so hard he was knocked backwards.

Once being assured their little guy was OK, soon-to-be dad Dave Watson posted the video of the 20-week scan online to show family and friends and as they say, the rest is history.

The doctor said EJ didn't hurt himself.

The parents said it's been fun to read the comments and speculate about what that punch may say about EJ’s personality.
